Iran Mediocre Shia 6 novembre 2006
Par William Garrison Jr. - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Initially when I saw the thickness of this book, I had so much hope that it would be very informative about the development of Shia Islam in the 1750s Iran and its political, social and religious applications in the 1990s. I was wrong. The author should have taken a class on how to write a book; chiefly, a book needs an outline. Instead, this book wanders about discussing various topics regarding the historical development of Shia Islam in Iran, but only very lightly. There is just no depth of analysis. Regarding this book's jumbled layout, it is as if while the author was walking to the publisher he tripped and all of the pages became intermixed, and the author never bothered to sort them out again. Instead of discussing a topic well and extensively once, the author drops portions of a topic throughout the book and leaves the reader trying to match them up. The main theme to this book is: "The bad Shia Islam that was invited to Persia-Iran in the 1750s by Arab Muslims destroyed the fine culture of Persia." Now read the previous sentence again a hundred times, because by doing so you will have read half of this book! (Don't believe me? Then read the book; but, I forewarned you.) This is more of a lamentable whining by a westernized Iranian that despotic Khomeini came to power, than anything approaching a good historical review of the development of Shiism in Iran. The author, born in Iran and who learned English, became a translator for the U.S. Army in the 1950s, and later moved to the United States. The author believes that Ayatollah Khomeini (who descended from an Arab family, not Persian) destroyed Iran and stifled the rights of various minorities that did not adhere to Khomeini's Shia-oriented dictates. The author eulogies that Reza Shah the Great (who ruled 1925-1941) really tried to lay the positive foundations of pro-Western democracy for Iran, but was thwarted by the Shia mullahs. The author realized that Mohammad Reza Shah (who ruled 1941-1979) was too incompetent to implement the positive goals of his "White Revolution", which was denounced by the Shia mullahs as curtailing their economic revenues from the government. If you want to learn anything about the rise of Shia Islam in Iran, or the impact of the Arab Khomeini upon Iran, read any other book on the subject rather than this one. This book is sadly 300 pages of fluffy lamentations, not substantial scholarly research, about how the author laments the 250-year decline of Persia under the Shia mullahs. The author opines that the only way as to how either Sunni or Shia Islam can be reformed (towards democracy rather than continuing as a theocracy) is by their adopting the better Muslim tenants that are practiced in the "Nation of Islam" of U.S. imam Louis Farrakhan.

Iran: Harsh Arm of Islam 21 décembre 2005

Growing up in Ahwaz, Iran, as a classmate of the author I always knew he was a talented writer and a genius thinker. In his book , his deep understanding of social interactions and religious conflicts is eloquently evident. A nation which can produce such intelligent people as the author deserves to have a much brighter future.

An important contribution to academic and community library International Studies and Iranian Studies reference collections 14 novembre 2008
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur

We are locked into a global war against militant Islam fundamentalism. One of those war fronts is Iran with its Shiite religious authorities and their anti-western policies. Born and raised a Shiite Muslim in Iran, George H. Hassan writes with a particular expertise and experience in "Iran: Harsh Arm Of Islam" when he provides a historical overview of Shi'ism in Iran; Khomeini and the Iranian Revolution; the role of the Mullahs; Iran's long-term goals and tactics; their nuclear program; the Iranian economy; and strategies for destabilizing the Iranian ruling regime through economic and political pressures. "Iran: Harsh Arm Of Islam" is informed, informative, and an important contribution to academic and community library International Studies and Iranian Studies reference collections, as well as critically significant reading for governmental policy makers and non-special general readers with an interest in Iran's threat to the stability of the Western World in general, and the Middle East in particular.

Islam/Iranian book review 7 décembre 2005
Par Go Bruins!!! - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Harsh Arm of Islam, was a great book for Muslims and non-Muslims like myself. It help me understand Islam and clarify some of the more confusing aspects of Islam.

I am a UCLA student studying world affairs. This book gave me insight into my Iranian friends and their family beliefs/culture.
